We go out in life and are in contact with people, places and things. The state we are in affects our surroundings. It most certainly affects the other people who are there. This has been more obvious than ever over the last year and a half. In late 2019 the Coronavirus started expanding itself into all the far reaches of this planet, arriving home everywhere. All sorts of varied responses and behaviors set into motion. The behavior of the virus was unknown to a large extent. The behaviors of people were also pretty random. Since there was no reliable test for this Coronavirus, at the beginning especially, it was hard to tell if someone had an allergy, a cold, a flu, or this particular Coronavirus called Covid-19. Covid-19 was showing itself to be surprisingly contagious, and somewhat deadly, compared to other Coronaviruses. A certain amount of fear ran through the world wide populace, and a certain amount of chaos ensued, fanned by the penchant of the news media and infotainment to feed on sensationalism. Some tried to be restrained, rational, measured, but they were drowned out. And a loudly calanging clarion bell is not inappropriate when grave danger is nearing or present. Currently, the threat seems to be fading. Some vigilance and heightened hygeine are still appropriate, needed and appreciated.It isn't over until it is over.
If we could actually rely on one another... "Take care of yourself." , "Get care when you are ill."Keep your body clean." are how the treatise called The Way to Happiness by L. Ron Hubbard opens. Our safety and happiness is intertwined with the safety and happiness of those around us. So please, take care of yourself. In that way, you are taking care of the rest of us. Our well being then will benefit you. www.thewaytohappiness.org @waytohappinesstampa
